5:20 am
as we head outside. plenty of clouds but, of course, it's dark out. we will look for some later clearing today. in fact, don't think we will see much clearing at all with the coast with the marine layer about 2,000 feet deep this morning. so the slow burn off leads to cool temperatures today. but the cooling will be felt inland. parts of the early work week. and then we will see a warmup for everyone. 62 redwood city. good morning mountain view, 60 for you. 67 oakland. santa rosa fairfield and napa. so a southwest flow this morning am how long the clouds to reach the delta. we will see the afternoon clearing. sunny skies on the way. looks like temperatures will come down out of the 80s into the 70s for our east bay valleys. here's the reason why. it's been trough after trough this summer. you see the rotation, the counter clockwise spin here, this area of low pressure. it will sit here today but beginning the week tomorrow and into tuesday, continues to slide to the south and east and as it
5:21 am
does, that will allow for the cooling to tapes. then once we get on the back side of it, come wednesday, we will warm up to around normal. that will bring more 90s into the forecast. here's the cloud deck all the way into the livermore valley this morning. even close to the delta. so we will look for 10:00, 11:00 for the clouds to begin to evaporate and peel on back. sunny skies in the forecast for the east bay valleys, but it just about ends there around the bay where we will see the clouds lingering from santa rosa westward toward the coast, down through the san mateo coast and only the 60s once again. you notice the 80s trying to build back in. it will be overall in the inland spots a little warmer, coastal spots a little cooler. fresno up to 100 degrees today. they will be cooling, too, with the effects of that trough in the days ahead. 83 in los angeles. and then in and around the south bay look for highs, about 80 sunyvale, mid-80s here for
5:22 am
campbell, cupertino 82. and peninsula has the cloudy coast with 60s there. upper 70s for redwood city. san francisco temperatures in the mid-60s with afternoon sun. we will call it partly cloudy late in the day. in the north bay highs ranging from the low 60s, stinson, to around 80, santa rosa. near east bay we are still in the 60s from richmond but near 80 in fremont and out over the hills look for a sunny and pleasant afternoon. concord, 85 degrees, as well as pleasanton. 87 livermore. and down by the monterey bay looks like the fog will pull on back and allow for sunny skies with 83 in hollister, and 87 gilroy. so overall today the coast will be cool and then everyone else sort of follows with cooler weather on the order of 2 to 4 degrees. for july standards that's right on through wednesday. then we will warm up. nothing too extreme. still looking at that, but it looks like at least we will get
5:23 am
